Sunday night’s 92nd Academy Awards will mark the official end of the awards season in Hollywood, and it’s been a long, long ride. This awards season was an eventful one, full of surprising victories like Awkwafina’s historic Golden Globes win and Joaquin Phoenix’s impassioned onstage call to action, as well as disappointing snubs such as the Academy’s blatant Lupita Nyong’o shade. Now, the Oscars will close it out with a bigger bang.
For the second year in a row, the Oscars will have no host (thanks, Kevin Hart), but that won't stand in the way of everyone involved having an amazing time. At the 2019 show, A-list actors took to the stage to present the awards in each category, armed with endless one-liners and fantastic chemistry with their co-presenters. No host, no problem.
This year, even more of Hollywood's elite will take the stage at Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles to present some of the industry's brightest and best (hi, Bong Joon Ho) with high honours for their work in film. From movie veterans who have been in the business for decades to silver screen first-timers, Hollywood will be in the house. The Academy scouted entertainers from every corner for the big night, and from the looks of the scheduled lineup, we're in for another excellent show.
Ahead, everyone who will be presenting at the 2020 Oscars, set to air live on ABC this Sunday, February 9.
